Even though the Bible teaches us that Jesus is the only way of salvation and the only source of God's blessing, people continue to trust in their own efforts or wisdom. Jacob did this in his early years as well. But in Genesis 32, Jacob came to realize that God was the only source of blessing. And because of this, he grabbed on to God and wouldn't let go. This is what we also need to do so that we might receive the blessings he offers to us.
